Labour’s cheap shots, Ctd

This is unbelievable… more cheap shots from Labour over appointments:

Labour spokesperson for education Nanaia Mahuta said there was a concern Apryll Parata’s promotion came so quickly after her sister was appointed minister.

“There is a perceived conflict of interest. People will draw all sorts of conclusions given the proximity of the appointment.”

This from the Party that put Mike Williams on every board under the sun, and appointed union hacks all over the show as payback for support.

They conveniently forget appointments such as Michael Cullen to Kiwibank, Mike Moore to Washington, Paul Swain and others.
Labour has no shame when it comes to taking cheap opportunist shots.

At least the Member for Mars, Catherine Delahunty recognises that this a merit appointment:

Green spokesperson for education Catherine Delahunty said Apryll Parata had been involved in education for a long time.

“It’s not someone who is coming in from the outside with no knowledge. It does become interesting when it’s two sisters running the Ministry of Education because it does sound to the public like it puts power in the hands of one family.”

She said her main concern was about the direction the ministry was taking, not the personnel.

The Greens once again showing a whole lot more maturity in opposition and leading the way, no wonder they are continuing to steal Labour’s votes.
